  • Tube troubles

    So there’s a signal failure at Mile End today.  More quick-setting concrete (1)?  One hopes not.
    However what I can’t understand is why they can’t just run up to Mile End (2) or a station or two before and turn the trains around there,  instead of causing grief on the entire line.


    (1) In case the link breaks, on the 23rd January contractors accidentally poured quick-setting concrete into a signalling room, suspending the Victoria Line for a day.

    (2) For non-Londoners, this is  a station on the eastern end of the Central Line.  There are 20 stations from Ealing Broadway in the west to Mile End.
